Preserving wildlife populations that are displaced or actively diminished by human activity remains essential for maintaining biodiversity. Nowhere is this more evident than in Africa, where many wildlife species are being driven to extinction by human activity. On this program, Paul Raffaele discussed wildlife preservation in Africa.

What can our closest living relatives - great apes like the chimpanzee and bonobo - teach us about ourselves? Are we the only species that tells lies or wages war? Do other apes have culture? On this episode, Dale Peterson joins us to discuss these fascinating, yet sadly endangered, animals. Topics: Dale Peterson, primates, apes, chimpanzees, Jane Goodall, bonobos, conservation
All living things are regulated from the molecules in our bloodstream to the populations of animals on the African Savanna. Today, Sean Carroll joins us to discuss the logic of regulation as well as how these principles can be applied to treat disease and heal ecosystems.

Less than a half a million African elephants live in the wild and more than 25,000 of those are poached every year. They are poached for their ivory even though African ivory collected after 1989 is generally illegal. One reason such robust poaching persists is that, until recently, there has been no way to determine when ivory was collected. Dr. Kevin Uno joins us to discuss his recent PNAS article detailing a test that closes this loophole. In the process, we discuss carbon, ecology,...
